Tendonitis is when the strong connective tissue that attaches muscle to the bone becomes inflamed through overuse.  When the tendon is overused, small tears occur which leads to inflammation. Tednonitis can occur in the shoulder (rotator cuff), biceps, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, shin and the largest and strongest tendon - the achilles tendon (of the heel).

To identify that tendonitis is present, osteopaths use gentle hand motions to detect the restrictions and sources of pain.  Tendonitis requires rest for healing and ostepathy can assist the healing process through massage, releasing techniques, joint mobilisation and manipulation.
